Sorry, but it's nonsense.

$ grep -r %{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so *

devel/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-1/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-2/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-3/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-4/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-5/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-5/e2fsprogs.spec~:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
FC-6/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
RHEL-4/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*
RHEL-5/e2fsprogs.spec:%{_root_libdir}/libblkid.so.*

(where %{_root_libdir} = /lib)

It's dynamically linked in many distributions without a problem.
